Towra Point Nature Reserve is a place of many contrasts. It forms the largest and most diverse estuarine wetland complex in NSW. Representing around half of the remaining mangrove area near Sydney, and most of the saltmarshes remaining in the region, this park is as beautiful as it is complex.

With an abundance of mudflat, fresh water wetlands and sea grass beds, the reserve teems with life. It provides breeding, feeding and roosting sites for many threatened and migratory bird species, which makes this reserve ideal for wetland birdwatching. Whether you experience these fragile and untouched wetlands by boat or kayak, you’re bound to love Towra.
